David Gilmour adds two nights at London's Royal Albert Hall Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Friday, 06 March 2015

Royal Albert HallIt has been announced that due to exceptional demand for the three nights that David Gilmour is performing at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 23rd-25th, two further nights have just been added. Tickets for these additional concerts - on October 2nd and 3rd - go on sale now through the normal ticketing outlets.

They have pointed out that "for the London concerts, the name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket. The lead booker must attend the concert and photo ID will be required to gain entry to the venue. There will be no exceptions to this rule. This is to try and stop secondary selling by ticket touts at high prices." This is exactly what happened with the Kate Bush concerts in London last year, and it seemed to work really well. It ensured that fans were there, and ticket touts/scalpers didn't get much of an opportunity to make a killing buying tickets for a show they would have no intention of seeing!

You can place your order for tickets to all the London shows through these links: Ticketmaster, Eventim, Seetickets, Stargreen and although please be aware that demand is incredibly high so you might need to be patient and keep retrying, as they seem to be adding tickets for sale progressively.

David Gilmour 2015 Live European Tour posterOur very best wishes, and many happy returns, to David Gilmour today, who will hopefully be celebrating his birthday in the spring sunshine!

It is exactly nine years to the day since the release of his last solo album, On An Island, with his previous album About Face having its 31st anniversary yesterday. But, of course, thoughts uppermost in everyone's minds relate to the 2015 European Tour which he announced this week, mentioning that his new album (as yet untitled) is due to coincide with the shows in September.

As an important reminder, tickets go on sale this morning at 10am GMT! If you didn't get a ticket in the presales earlier, now is your chance. Here are the details you need:

Please can you use our ticket links to purchase yours, as some of them will help toward site running costs. Ticket restrictions, and booking fees, will apply. David's blog notes that "there are no other dates planned at this time. Further details, concerning personnel and such like, will follow as and when they become available, so please sit tight."

Good look with your ticket purchasing, and let us know what show(s) you are going to. In the meantime, of course, we wish David a very happy day!
